Chief of General Staff Lt. General Gadi Eisnekot was released from the hospital Saturday, following prostate cancer surgery.

Eisenkot, who had the procedure at Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva, has been temporarily replaced by Major General Yair Golan while he will be recovering from the surgery over the next few days.

Eisenkot, 54, was named to the office in February of 2015, succeeding Ret. Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz following a four year stint as head of the IDF.
